Government Relations

FHLB Des Moines works to ensure that members of Congress from our district support legislation that matters most to our members. 

Lenders and communities across the nation rely on the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLBank) System, including FHLB Des Moines, for liquidity to support the creation of jobs, fund new business development and provide safe and decent homes.

Through education, public events and other efforts, FHLB Des Moines is working to ensure that members of Congress from our district support legislation that allows us to continue our mission to:

  • Preserve the cooperative ownership structure of the Federal Home Loan Bank System
  • Preserve the Affordable Housing Program
  • Preserve the bank’s investment authority
  • Preserve equal access to low-cost funding by all creditworthy members

For additional information regarding the FHLBank System and upcoming legislative and regulatory initiatives, please visit any of the sites listed below.
